During my recent Singapore trip, I took time crossing to Malaysia just to visit Inglot’s store and boy was it worth it!
Inglot is a Polish brand that is not often heard by commercial consumers but it has developed a following due to its countless range of highly pigmented shades and unique way of choosing them on your own. It’s what Inglot calls the Freedom System where you purchase their customizable empty palettes that come in different sizes then choose the shades to your own liking – such a simple ingenious idea!
So on to my review of Inglot’s freedom blushes. There’s a lot to cover but I’ll try to be as brief as possible
From the left, you would see I have my shade 67, 27, 28 and 20 as shown in the photo below. Shade 67 is a warm apricot color, 27 is a dusty rose pink, 28 is an old rose pink and 20 is a pale lavender pink.
All of these blushes have a matte finish. They’re highly pigmented so you need to tap the excess before swiping your blush brush onto the cheeks then apply with a light hand. Remember, it’s always easier to add makeup than take it away. The texture is smooth so it’s a breeze to blend and spreads out evenly.
I’m a huge animal lover so I was ecstatic to know that Inglot does not test on animals and is paraben free
Although shade 20 looks like a bold color in the palette, it comes out as a natural apricot flush on the
cheeks when properly applied. For shade 28, it looks like a pinkish brown color from the pan but
applies as an old rose pink.
Here are the swatches.
Here they are when applied on the cheeks. It may be a bit hard to tell the difference between shade
27 and 28 in the photos but they’re definitely apparent in person.
Since I got the individual blush pans, I went ahead and purchased their empty magnetic palettes that came with 4 slots. The palette is super sturdy, tried and tested cause I already dropped it once and it survived *phew*. It was quite heavy compared to my other customizable palettes which is the only thing I didn’t like about it.
Each blush pan contains 7g / 0.25 US OZ which will take me forever to consume if I was not a makeup artist
A quick tip for those who owns or will own Inglot magnetic palettes, please do not attempt to use a sharp object to yank out the pans as you may end up ruining your lovely makeup. Instead, use a magnet like the ones you stick in your fridge. Place the magnet in the outer corner of the pan and it will effortlessly come off.
I got each of the blush pan at 38 RM (Malaysian Ringgit) so that’s about P540 when converted. I also bought their empty magnetic palette with four slots for 45 RM which is P630. To sum it up, the cost of the entire palette is P2,790.
Unfortunately, Inglot does not have a retail store in the Philippines but there are online stores who offer some of its products.
Apart from being highly pigmented, I’m happy to announce that all of them have long staying power. About 7-8 hours I would say depending on your skin type and how you apply it.
I would say my favorite among the four has got to be shade 28 and the least is shade 67 cause of its lavender tones. Shade 28 absolutely compliments anyone especially those with warm undertones from light to medium dark complexion. This is by far one of the best blushes I’ve owned and I hope you will get to try one of these too
Here’s my score board:
